Services to Members
The Law Society of Saskatchewan Library supports the members’ legal research needs. Members can access books, journals, law reports, statutes, and other legal reference materials in 17 locations throughout Saskatchewan. Library staff maintain a legal news service and several online caselaw and legislative research databases. CaseMail is sent electronically to all members twice a month. Subscriptions to several online research products are available to the members’ desktops through the Law Society of Saskatchewan website Members’ Section.
The Library staff can help members with their legal research. Contact us:
- If you have questions about any electronic service that we offer
- If you need help finding a textbook
- If you need help noting up a case, statute or regulation
- If you need a journal article or judgment
- If you need to trace the history of a statute or regulation
We have years of experience with print and online resources. We can quickly and efficiently find the best textbook or journal article, trace a statute section or note-up a case. Please keep in mind that as librarians we are not legally trained so we cannot give legal opinions.

However, library staff cannot give legal advice; interpret the meaning of statutes, cases or regulations; select statutes, cases or regulations for a specific situation; choose specific forms or language to use in forms; describe how to file a document, describe what document to file, comment on how to proceed with court actions; or state opinions on legal matters.
